Hello Team McTopss!

We are so excited to welcome you to your final year here at the best school in the nation! As you now know, you are a part of Team McTopss, and we cannot wait to meet each and every one of you. We hope you are looking forward to this year as much as we are, and what a year it is going to be!

Get ready to dive into some gripping novels, go back in time to some of history’s most monumental moments, hone your writing craft, develop a love of all things mathematical, and uncover some of our world’s most intriguing mysteries. Everyday in Team McTopss will bring about new discoveries and thoughtful discussions. You are now the leaders at Frey Elementary School, and as Peter Parker’s Uncle Ben once told him, “With great power comes great responsibility.” So, enjoy your last few days of summer, and start getting your brains ready for a year full of learning!

We look forward to meeting you all at our combined Sneak-a-Peek and Open House on Monday, July 30th at 8:00 am!
